Donning that shroud I look up to the sky

Erring no longer, I am at rest

Alive in the moment, I look back

To all the memories I would have lost

Had I not been alive


The Actor

I have been summoned 
its my curtain call 
now its begun 
a monologue 
I can hear it 
from the wooden box
I hope I go
with an applause

You and I

with your hand in mine
my eyes
looked out of the window 
and the world 
slowly went by 

the cars left us behind 
you and I 
this could be our final ride
open your eyes
before you go
onto the other side

let your heart beat 
louder than the siren
linger on 
till your hand 
is in mine
